Cherie-Finesse Engeltjie (RIP?)

February 2008


Date of Birth

Went missing 
20 October 2005

January 2012
Tragedy struck Alida's household when her mother got cancer of the pancreas and liver.
Alida quit working to take care of her mother.
Alida had too many cats to cope with and was forced to scale down.
We offered Engeltjie to a new home.
Sadly the new owner let him out and he disappeared. 
He was micro-chipped. but so far no information from that side. 
We can only pray that he got a new owner that taak care of him...

About him

Engeltjie (meaning "little angle") is a younger brother of Angelo. He has five TV commercials for Nestle Gourmet to his credit: 2006 Cape Town;  2007 Milan and  2008, 2010, 2011 Cape Town.

Engeltjie is a SACC supreme premier and earned the title Regional Qualifier in 2009.

He was a singleton kitten, and Ms Daisie decided to raise him on Alida's bed. As kitten, at night, he slept in the hollow of Alida's neck! 

Engeltjie went to a new home in 2012, together with Prince Diamond.
